2004 Suzuki GS500F Review

2004 Suzuki GS500F

Reliability, performance, new aggressive new look around $4k. Wow

Based on the successful GS500, Suzuki proudly introduces the 2004 Suzuki GS500F. The new GS500F blends all the reliability and performance of the original machine with an aggressive new look and feel for 2004.

The most distinctive feature of the new GS500F is its fully enclosed fairing, which provides a more aggressive appearance and sportier character. The new fairing features a pair of vertically stacked headlights that bear a striking resemblance to those on the hugely popular GSX-R1000. On either side of the bike, the new fairing incorporates two sharply styled vents feeding fresh air to the engine. Handsome custom cutouts further enhance cooling efficiency, while still showing off the attractive engine cases. Remarkable new looks aside, the new fairing also offers the GS500F rider improved wind protection for improved overall effectiveness of the motorcycle.

The GS500F is powered by a venerable yet reliable four-stroke, 487cc parallel-twin engine. Fed by dual 34mm Mikuni carburetors, the air-cooled motor is lightweight and compact with an abundance of low-rpm torque for easy riding and versatile performance. An easy-shifting six-speed transmission provides plenty of performance.

Supporting the GS500F is a black painted rigid box-section frame with a single shock suspension. A single hydraulic disc with four-piston caliper provides reliable braking in front, while a dual-piston caliper-and-disc combo is mounted out back
